|The observatory was
located in Druogo,
town of Val Vigezzo, province of Verbania,
near Lake Maggiore, Italian Alps. Aldo modified the home roof to
include a 2.5 m dome, supported with two external colums for the walls,
and with a single independent column for the telescope. Inside the dome
the Schmidt Camera was supported with a heavy fork mount.
Now the telescope and mount were located in the personal observatory of Lorenzo Comolli.
